This week's Saturday sit-down has some international flavors. I talked with JB from the Posterdunk podcast, part of Posterdunk.com, a French NBA website. JB knows all about Nic Batum's NBA career and his international ups and downs with the French national team. 

Unfortunately this summer was a bit of a downer for Batum and France. The French national team lost to Spain in a thriller of a semifinal matchup at the international Eurobasket tournament. While Batum hit a three pointer to send the game into overtime, he missed critical free throws down the stretch to send France to the finals. Overall his summer stats were underwhelming. He averaged only 9.1 points on 35 percent shooting (including 6/35 from three), 3.6 rebounds and 1 turnover for every 1.3 assists.

Should Hornets fans be worried about his summer struggles or will Nic Batum bounce back this preseason and beyond?
